Nepal Glasspipes – Support Nepal in Their Time of Need From within the Cannabis Community
If you never thought much about Nepal in the past, you probably do now. I think it’s a poignant time to introduce you to Nepal Glasspipes dba Himalayan Handicrafts, a Nepalese glass blowing studio which specializes in marijuana smoking paraphernalia.
If you haven’t heard, Nepal was recently struck by a series of horrendously powerful earthquakes. With the death toll in the thousands, and communication sparse, it is difficult to know whether or not Nepal Glasspipes is still operating. But if they are, they could use our support now more than ever. Those who haven’t been wiped out by the quake have been left homeless, hungry and jobless as nearly the entire country is in panic mode, scrambling to survive and maintain some semblance of “normal”. The glass artists at Nepal Glasspipes dba Himalayan Handicrafts are no exception.
There are many things you can do to help the Nepalese people right now, including donating to any number of relief organizations. Since we are stoners, we have a unique opportunity to both support some Nepalese artists in getting back on their feet, and getting something in return (other than brownie points).
It’s not just a good deed, the glass work of these artists is truly exquisite. They use high quality borosilicate glass to create exotic eastern influenced cannabis paraphernalia. Their water bongs feature wild curvaceous accents, and their chillums feature ornate delicate patterns. Both are reminiscent of art you might find decorating a Hindu temple.
With designs emanating from the belly of the birthplace of the Buddha, if you are interested in devotional fine arts, this glass company won’t disappoint.
They offer COD shipping from Nepal all across the United States, but I won’t lie, their website is riddled with hard to understand Google translated information such as:
“We will reply you within 24 hours with detail, Then after receive your verification we will entertain that as an order receive. Order will conform only after receive the payment.”
The truth is, that while I cannot vouch for this company in particular, I can say that pretty much any money going to Nepal at this point is going for a good cause. And if you happen to get some super beautiful glassware in the process, even better! I myself wondered up and down the Thamel Market where their store front is many a time during my travels in The East, and the tragedies happening as we puff in our cozy lounge chairs are difficult to imagine. So, even if you aren’t planning to order a new Nepalese bubbler, take a moment to send some prayers and good vibes their way.
